Note: Take this with a grain of salt. This was posted on 4chan of all places, so take that as you will. Majority of leaks have been fake there, but a good handful have been real (such as Baptiste). Again, this is all rumors.
This was “leaked” by someone who was recently released from Blizzard. I dont know if its real or not, but figured it would be interesting to discuss.
Apparently, things aren’t going well at Blizzard. Since this is Overwatch, I’ll keep it Overwatch related. The ex employee stated that nearly everyone in the office “agreed that sacrificing the casual community for the esports one” was a “mistake.” Personally I agree.
If the bill goes through with banning loot boxes, they already plan to create a shop similar to Apex Legends, where skins cycle out every other week that you can directly purchase. Blegh.
Now, for Overwatch 2 stuff…
Essentially, the leaker said it plays like a L4D2, except with “robots” (Omnics obviously) and its going to be priced at 60$ with exclusive skins slapped onto it.
The main villain is a “techromancer” that brings the dead back to life using nanites. Apparently she’ll be added to Overwatch at some point and time with her ultimate allowing her to create bots from dead players, attacking their own team. Sounds pretty cool, not gonna lie.
The game takes place after Reaper invades Winstons home.
Tracers girlfriend apparently dies and Widowmakers talon brainwashing begins to fade, causing the two to “hook” up. This is where I raised an eyebrow because it reeks of fake.
McCree is apparently being retconned as a third clone of Soldier 76, the second one found dead during the story. Again, this raises eyebrows.
And Reaper is gay. I think that and the stuff above sounds like the usual hogwash 4chan spits out, but again this could be real, or most likely not.
Now, all of this seems interesting and somewhat real, but I wanna hear what you guys think.
Again, none of this is confirmed. Please do NOT harass the devs or anyone at Blizzard for “POTENTIAL” leaks.
EDIT Screw it. Heres the full thing. Has some minor language in it, but I havent read past the Overwatch section, so take that as you will.
